Cultivation: This variety is bred for spring to early summer harvest in areas where bolting is a problem. It also grows well as a late summer to early winter crop where no frost occurs. Timing on spring and fall plantings should be trialed as changing (increasing or decreasing) daylength can be a trigger for bolting. Prepare fertile well drained soil. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Exposing plants to frost or prolonged temperatures below 50°F may result in bolting.
Note: Chinese Cabbage requires vernalization. Bud differentiation and bolting results from low temperatures of 41°F for a week or 50°F for two weeks. For spring harvest, transplant seedlings with 5-7 true leaves raised at 73-75°F during the day and over 53°F at night. Providing plants with adequate water and fertilizer after transplanting will promote faster growth.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Used in sukiyaki, yosenabe, ohitashi, stir-fries, pickling and salad.
